Considerably richer than you: a rant.

Hey, I've been offered a new credit card. It's a really good one.

You see, it's a mastercard, which has to be good, right? I mean, obviously, it's a card for masters. 

And that's not all. 

This card, you see, it's not for your ordinary masters, oh no. It's designed for elite people - in fact for world elite people.

And it's not just for any old master of the world elite, either.

You see, this card I've been offered is actually a Premier World Elite Mastercard.

How about that?

Impressive, huh?

Yep, I thought so.

Although...

...hmm...

...perhaps I'll wait to be offered a Superior Premier World Elite No Riffraff Mastercard. 

Because suddenly this one's started seeming rather ordinary.

Though, to be honest, they really lost me at For an annual fee of £195...

Word To Use Today: elite. This word comes from the Old French eslit, chosen, from eslire, to choose, from the Latin ēligere to elect.
